In 1989, alarmed by the prospect of development destroying the scenic wooded hillsides surrounding their National Historic Landmark City, the citizens of Jacksonville, Oregon rallied to form the non-profit Jacksonville Woodlands Association. During the past 2 decades the Woodlands Association has preserved 22 parcels of forested open space (320 acres) and has constructed 18 miles of connecting interpretive and recreational trails surrounding 70% of the town's historic district.
This trail was really pretty, took a couple of hours to complete, and had a nice variety of nature, but we were pretty disappointed that you could hear the sounds from the busy road nearby the majority of the trail. It definitely took away from our enjoyment of the scenery to hear cars rushing by.
It's so easy to just hike up and around, taking a different trail each time.
good walk, not quite easy, but it was fun.
This was a fun hike! Trail is well maintained. Quite a few hikers on the trails.
a good evening hike
Very nice hike for me and the dog :)
Fun little jaunt!
